Now in its 29th year, the WPA Art Auction has become one of the hottest tickets of the season, routinely selling out several weeks in advance. This year’s event is no exception so we will make available a limited number of tickets for the dessert reception and auction bidding.

For the third year in a row, this exciting event will be held at the Katzen Arts Center on the campus of the American University. Featuring works by over 100 regional artists selected by 8 of our top curators, Cream: the WPA 2010 Art Auction Exhibition will be on view from January 30 through March 6 in the American University Museum. A not-to-miss event leading up to the Auction will be the Curator Talks and presentation of the Alice Denney Award for Contemporary Art to James F. Fitzpatrick on Thursday, February 25 at 6:30 pm in the Abramson Family Recital Hall at the Katzen Arts Center. The exhibition and curator talk are free and open to the public.
